dc.description.abstractYao Lu is a renowned Chinese photographer based in Beijing. He studied at Central Academy of Fine Arts, China and Queensland College of Art, Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. Since 2006 he has created a large series of works in which he expresses a sarcastic contradiction between the idyllic imagery of Chinese Mountain-and-Water painting and garbage from contemporary urban construction, revealing the effects of the mass urbanization process in China. In 2008 he won the Paris Photo BMW Prize for contemporary photography, and was shortlisted for the prestigious Prix Pictet 2009.
